The Things We Carry

TLS 365 Experience #273
November 28, 2017

Playing games for realizing potential and understanding life, I took an exercise and applied it to the labyrinth at a conference. I asked each to bring all the things they came into the course with including coats, purses, laptops, notepads, books, bags, drinks, food, etc. Some had much to carry and some had a few had very little.

They began their walk with the things they carry and at any point, they were encouraged to put down what they did not want to carry any longer on the labyrinth.  Anything left on the labyrinth was fair game for another to pick up on their walk. Our only objective was to not leave anything on the labyrinth. As they completed their walks, each brought their new/old belongings to a circle and each created a story with the items they had in their possession around a given topic.

It was a fun and amusing experience as was the retrieval of possessions afterward. The conversation that followed led to some greater realizations about the things we carry, choices, and the creativity in spontaneity.

Messages of Meaning

TLS 365 Experience #239
October 25, 2017

Messages of Meaning... You are an insightful Wonder, thank you for being.... cards and affirmation of labyrinth appreciation... anonymous

 

For years I have made design after design and given them away on cards with affirmative quotes for others.

It is my labyrinth mission and one of great purpose and practice that provides a path to giving.

I receive creativity and more of it when I give. The messages uplift me as I hope they might others in the moment they reach for the card.

Entertaining Education

TLS 365 Experience #40
April 9, 2017

Sharing the labyrinth experience with kids is always an adventure. It can remind us of our own youthful curiosity and at the same time bring about the unexpected direction creatively.

One after school group was particularly wiggly from the long day and while using meditative experiences in the past has been beneficial, this day called for movement.

We set up a game like experience where a set of ground rules established safety and concern for others and then each found a different way to walk the path and no one could walk the same as others before. It proved just the right amount of activity and creativity that led to some interesting discussion about how and what we learn independently and collectively.

IMG_4576On the ninth day of Labyrinths… The Baltic Wheel of Dancing Woman fame came to my fingers. I like the smooth clean loops of the design and when I walk it I always think there is a friend behind it knowing Lisa Gidlow Moriarty who designed it.

Today’s walk brought the idea of the importance of writing and projects that I develop. Many of them were surfacing today as a result of the calls that came through and somehow the walk on the labyrinth tied things together quite efficiently and effectively.

As I came into the choice of entrances, I slid my fingers round a few times and the projects that were spoken of today came to mind. It has become time to now write the book I had begun and wrote twice last year as well. There was more to take in and when I gave myself permission and time to do just that, more of the rhyme and reason began to make sense.

IMG_4575With all these projects, writing and ideas in my mind for the past few days, the walk seemed to form a structure and bring together similar threads. I had left the finger labyrinths out for use and found I left the Dancing Woman nestled on the couch comfortably waiting for me. Picking it up I thought of the creativity and allowing that brought the design alive. I knew I had picked right for the day as it is my creativity and insight that brought many of these things together.

LYIUContributorsNow as I enter some new phases finally at the end of the year, I see the importance of the long stitches of patience, very similar to the long stretches of the labyrinth walk. I also began to regard the many paths that brought me to the center and the many people around these projects and realized that today was filled with people I had met in India this year from International parts. All had come together under one purpose and each contributed their abilities and skills to different assignments toward that one purpose.

IMG_4578As I thought about that, I see that at year’s end how these significant people have come back together as we plan for a collaborative approach to travel and work together internationally. I cherish these people who represent a more global approach to my life as I step into these wonderful new directions that encompass the world outside my doorstep. We are the world indeed and I am that dancing lady, full of movement, purpose and passion.

With much gratitude to the Dancing Lady, International Friendships and the creativity that stems from an ever present curiosity. With creativity I develop projects and writings and in this walk was inspired by my global friends who I inspired. It is a mutual circle of love, connection and creativity.
